TOP 7 FACTORS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT Ahmad Zaki Resources Bhd (AZRB, 7078) Calvin Tan Research




Hi guys,
These are the salient factors for AZRB

1) A DEFENSIVE HIGH MARGIN OF SAFETY STOCK
At 36.5 sen with NTA at 89 sen AZRB is selling at almost 60% discount to NTA. This is the margin of safety Ben Graham required at 30%

2) AZRB AT 36.5 SEN IS SELLING AT ALL TIME LOW COMPARED TO ITS HEY DAYS OF OVER RM2.60 BEFORE SPLIT
This is the time to buy low. Buy low is the most important criteria to sell high later (As opposed to chase high then sell low)

3) AZRB IS A TOP CLASS A BUMI CONTRACTOR. IT WINS CONTRACTS ON ITS OWN MERIT
IT HAS SECURED MANY CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

4) AZRB PAYS GOOD DIVIDENDS
See

Let's calculate for year 2018
It paid a One sen dividend
It gave One Bonus share for 8 shares held which is 1/8 x 36.5 = equivalent to 4.56 sen
So total yield is 4.56 & One sen = 5.56 sen
That is a very nice 15.2% yield
(NOTE: AT 15.2% YIELD AZRB OFFERS ONE OF THE HIGHEST DIVIDEND YIELD IN KLSE)
This shows that Company is sanguine about its future as dividend cannot lie

5) THE MANAGEMENT OF AZRB IS FAIR AND TRANSPARENT
To benefit from the Bonus Issue & Dividend AZRB DIRECTORS USED THEIR OWN MONIES TO BUY SHARES FROM OPEN MARKET TO QUALIFY FOR THEM JUST LIKE ALL SHAREHOLDERS (THERE IS NO SPECIAL FAVOURS LIKE JAKS DIRECTORS WHICH REWARD THEMSELVES WITH LOTS OF "FREE SHARES"
See
NOTE: DIRECTORS AND INSIDERS BUYING SHOWED CONFIDENCE (AND THEIR COST OF PURCHASE BEFORE BONUS RANGES FROM 50 SEN TO OVER RM1.00)
So at 36.5 Sen we are getting in far below Directors' cost

6) AZRB HAS LAND ASSETS STILL AT OLD BOOK VALUE AT WONDERFUL PRICES
See (refer to AR and scroll down to Properties owned by AZRB)
Let;s take a look at 2 pieces
1) At Property No. 6 GM 1754 Lot 167 Mukim Sabai Daerah Bentong Pahang Darul Makmur Date of purchase 8-Oct-10
Vacant land Freehold 4.578 ha    Price: RM960,000
AZRB has a 4.578 hectare of FREEHOLD LAND IN BENTONG with a Book Value of Rm960,000
One hectare = 2.471 acre
So 4.578 hectare x 2.471 = 11.312 Acres
So 11.312 Acres of Freehold Lands valued at Rm960,000
How much per acre
Rm960,000 divides by 11.312 = Rm84,865 per acre
How much per sq ft? Divides 84,865 by 43560 = Rm1.94 Psf
Whoa! AZRB's Freehold land in Bentong has a Book Value of Rm1.94 psf?
This is less than the price of a mosaic tile going at Rm2.00 to Rm3.00 psf

See this
Lot 8316 PT18854 - PT19458 Mukim Bukit Payung Daerah Marang Terengganu Darul Iman
Land held for Development Leasehold expiring in year 2115   66.96 acres  Rm7,500,000
This is a leasehold development land with lease until year 2115
66.96 acres priced at Rm7.5 millions
To convert to price per acre  Rm7,500,000 divides by 66.96 = Rm112,007
To further convert to Per Sq Ft
Rm112,007 divides by 43,560 = Rm2.57
Wow. At Rm2.57 psf this is even cheaper than Naim's land in Sarawak at Rm4 psf
 

NOW IF ECRL (East Coast Railway Line) is restored then AZRB should reap a windfall like Pan Borneo Highway for Naim. If not still Ok
Those lands in Bentong are suitable to plant "Mau Sang Wang Duria" while Maran has a population of over 100,000 people. So just build affordable houses and they should sell well
